Maze Runner: The Death Cure Trailer


Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) and his fellow Gladers have fought their way out of a Griever-infested labyrinth, abandoned streets filled with Flare-infected Cranks and avoided kidnap by nefarious WCKD troops. But now comes their biggest challenge of them all. They can no longer run and hide from their fate. They must band together to take down WCKD and save their friends, and the rest of civilisation, once and for all.

It's time to get the answers that they have been looking for, and along the way uncover the secret behind the cure for the deadly Flare pandemic - a secret that they know lies within the Immunes. Do to this they must tackle yet another maze; bigger and more terrifying than that which circled the Glade.

On the other side is a legendary city that could answer their prayers, but it's unlikely that they'll all make it out alive. With Ava Paige (Patricia Clarkson) and WCKD still on their backs, their mission seems futile, but Thomas is determined to fight until the very end.

Detroit Review

Extraordinary

After The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal reteam to tell a true story from half a century ago, finding unnerving present-day resonance in the details. Using exhaustive research, they recount the events surrounding the Detroit riots for the first time, with characters who feel achingly real. It's so impeccably assembled that it carries a strong punch to the gut.

It kicked off in July 1967 when white police raided a peaceful party, brutally arresting the blacks in attendance. People hit the streets in protest, and the officials cracked down. Caught up in this, aspiring Motown singer Larry (Algee Smith) and his pal Fred (Jacob Latimore) take refuge in the Algiers Motel, where they meet some other men (including Anthony Mackie and Jason Mitchell) and two white girls (Hannah Murray and Kaitlyn Dever). Thinking they heard shots fired, local cop Krauss (Will Poulter) and his partners (Jack Reynor and Ben O'Toole) charge in, lining everyone up and menacing them brutally. Caught in the middle, security guard Melvin (John Boyega) tries to diffuse the situation without further aggravating these viciously bigoted policemen.

The film opens with a lucid prologue tracing the roots of America's racial tensions in the continued segregation between inner-cities and suburbs, creating a police state with whites marginalising blacks. Bigelow's direction and Boal's script then recount events journalistically, throwing the audience right into the situation without character back-stories. This makes everything feel urgent and dangerous, a situation in which absolutely anything can happen. So when it leads to murder, we're deeply horrified.

'Detroit' Director Kathryn Bigelow Says Talking About Race Is "More Vital Than Ever"


Kathryn Bigelow John Boyega Will Poulter

Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow says that talking about the issue of race in America is “more vital than ever”, after headline-grabbing events in Charlottesville last weekend.

The 65 year old filmmaker spoke on the eve of the release of her new movie Detroit, which stars John Boyega and Will Poulter and tells the events of the Detroit rebellion in July 1967, that was triggered by heavy-handed policing of the city’s black population.

Bigelow wants to meet racism “head-on”, telling The Guardian that “to do nothing is not an option”.

John Boyega And Will Poulter Bonded In Detroit


John Boyega Will Poulter Kathryn Bigelow

Boyega (The Force Awakens) plays Melvin Dismukes, a quietly observant security officer, while Poulter (The Revenant) plays Philip Krauss, an abusive policeman. As non-American actors, they're able to get under the skin of these characters without any cultural baggage. And despite the fact that they are playing characters on opposite sides of the conflict, the actors bonded on the set.

Detroit stars the two BritsDetroit stars the two Brits

Boyega says he heard about the film when the auditions came up, and he had time to fit one movie in before resuming his Star Wars role for The Last Jedi. "I wanted a movie that was grounded and based on a true story," he says. "And this was an issue that I'm very passionate about, given the subject matter. I see the movie as Detroit's origin story: the scars and the hurt. This place was victimised by systemic racism and violence. And that creates an imbalance that's very, very hard to sort out."

Will Poulter To Play Evil Clown In Fukunaga's 'It' Remake


Will Poulter

Will Poulter will play the evil clown Pennywise in Cary Fukunaga's remake of It. The film will be split into two feature films though will reportedly stay true to Stephen King's original story while giving the terrifying tale a new aesthetic.

Will PoulterWIll Poulter will play the evil clown Pennywise in Cary Fukunaga's It remake

The original It followed a group of outcast kids who come together over summer break to take on a monster disguised as a clown who's haunting the town. The popular book was made into a TV miniseries in 1991 starring John Ritter and Tim Curry - the latter famously playing the evil clown. A movie adaptation was never made given the size of King's novel - hence Fukunaga's decision to split his film into two.

Glassland Review


Good

Even the lighter moments in this dark Irish drama are tinged with sadness, including a scene in which a tormented mother and son escape through dancing together ... to the strains of Soft Cell's Tainted Love. But the film is anchored by such a solid performance by Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction) that it's definitely worth a look.

Reynor plays John, a young guy in Dublin working extra shifts as a cab driver to support his alcoholic mother Jean (Toni Collette) and his younger brother Kit (Harry Nagle), who has been institutionalised with Down's Syndrome and is never visited by his mum, not even on his 18th birthday. But then she's too busy drinking herself into serious illness. John's only support comes from his best pal Sean (Will Poulter), who has problems of his own as his ex (Maria Carlton) is demanding cash to support their young child. When Sean opts to move abroad to find work, John decides to get his mother into rehab, consulting a counsellor (Michael Smiley) who tells him that she will require a lot more than the one week the state can provide.

Things take a bizarre turn from here that isn't very clearly defined, but then writer-director Gerard Barrett isn't interested in explaining all of the details, mainly because he's telling the story from John's frazzled perspective. John lives through all of this a moment at a time, so the past is irrelevant, he seeks brief moments of joy wherever he can find them, and he just gets on with the job at hand, however freaky it may be. Through all of this, Barrett keeps things intense and unsettling, never quite letting the audience get its balance. This bold approach makes us feel almost as overwhelmed as John does.
